Your dental record and any other information that we collect is kept strictly confidential and used only for your care. It is the policy of this practice to maintain security of personal information at all times, and to ensure that the information is only available to authorised members of staff.
Your dental file is handled with the utmost respect for your privacy. The file will be accessed by your dentist, and when necessary, by the other staff in the practice for communicating relevant information to specialists or allied health professionals.
It may also be necessary for our staff to access your file to address the administrative requirements of running a dental practice. As a condition of their employment, all our staff are bound by strict confidentiality requirements.
Ordinarily we will not release the contents of your dental file without your consent, but there may be occasions where we will be required to release the details of your file, such as for legal disclosure as required by a court of law.
If you have any concerns about the use of your personal information, please speak to your dentist or our Practice Manager Kirsty Hibberson.
